He added that if Bitcoin budget owners boost to regarding 7 percent of Visa’s 4.5 billion account holders, the fair value of the coin would raise to $150,000.
Earlier in May, the crypto-bull secured Bitcoin to see a year-end rally and also get to as high as $25,000, defeating the December 2017 bull-run. Tom Lee changed his assumptions in November, when the coin was trading above $6,000 and forecasted a year end rise to $15,000.
After the Bitcoin Money [BCH] hardfork, which sent the market right into a freefall, the top crypto’s price has decreased by virtually 48.4 percent and has seen a nearly $50 billion market cap autumn, because the start of November.
